Asbestos Exposure in Kansas

Aircraft Manufacturing in Kansas

People who are at an elevated risk of asbestos diseases in Kansas are those who worked in the large aircraft manufacturing and maintenance industry. Affected workers are mostly in Wichita, which is the “Air Capital of the World.”

With agriculture as the primary industry in Kansas, there have been deaths reported in the state due to machinery repair and renovation. Unfortunately, many of the families of these workers also have an increased risk of developing cancer because of the asbestos fibers that were carried home on the body and clothing of those workers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Kansas

Kansas ranks 29th in the U.S. for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 337 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Kansas

You do not have to file your claim in the state in which you live. 

It’s far more important to contact an attorney with a strong history of experience specifically in asbestos cases, than it is to select one who happens to be in your area of Kansas. The most successful attorneys in your area may have never handled an asbestos case.

SWMW attorneys dedicate the overwhelming majority of their time and effort prosecuting mesothelioma claims, so we know which states and jurisdictions are going to provide the best outcome for your case and can get your case settled faster.
